This glimpse of Oklahoma City is straight from my living room, an art piece created and given to me by my sister. Still, it seems appropriate as we transition from season to season. Butterflies are, of course, a symbol of transformation, joy, and soaking in the light. I know summer doesn't officially arrive until the solstice later in June, but we have 90s in our forecast this week. That heat draped across the body certainly feels like summer. And, summer always started mentally and emotionally for me at the end of the school year, which was often the final days of May (and is even now for many local schools).
"I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human." - Oriah Mountain Dreamer
